Price has been drifting down and has now hit a level that seems like a bargain! Was looking for a hidef player to pair with my new Sony 1000XM2s

Price is really good, thanks.

However, just FYI, if you are using wireless headphones, they use internal DAC, so no need of descent DAC in the player. Just need proper Bleutooth codec support (aptX / LDAC)
Good mp3 player, i have it but i pay 250 with sony earphones, if you listen hours of music and want to have best quality and don't want to drain your phone battery it's something for you. Battery last more then 30 hours (on bluetooth 10+)
I have the last model, the NW-A35. Used the remainder of my free curry’s voucher from a previous deal.
This is looks very similar spec wise but adds aptx-hd. The sound is amazing with a good pair of headphones. Hot for the price as it’s a new Walkman
Really tempted by this.....but, can someone who owns one tell me what the volume limiter is like and if there is a bypass for it? For example selecting anything but Europe as the default location etc. Thanks in advance - finger is on the mouse ready to click buy!
Your volume rocker is max 120 i always listen on 90-95 and after 2 or 3 hours is going down to 50 (for protecting ears) but you can come back to high level and listen like before

Does it auto drop the volume? And is it pretty loud on 90-95?

My phone had crap volume,bought a set of Betron HD800 bluetooth headphones @£18 from Amazon, as the headphones power themselves under half volume on the phone is enough for me and I'm a metalhead lol....don't think those Sony players come with headphones anyway.
so, so tempted but the price of some of the hi res downloads seem expensive
yes it drop volume after 2 or 3 hours sony call it ear protection it can't be turn off, but like i said before you can easly make it high after, on 90-95 is loud enough , when you turn on player it always default on 50, and you don't feel loose quality even if you go to max
Had my eye on this for a while. Bought! Really good price, excellent walkman. Using some standard earphones and they sound incredible

Just received it - is tiny but packs a punch. V pleased with my purchase. Not sure I can tell the diff between LDAC and aptX HD though.

Can you just load this with mp3 from Windows media player like the other Sony players if not doing HD.
I really need a new player...lol33567311-RnUh2.jpg

Could you provide a link or auction reference number? I can't find this one on there for that price. Probably all gone knowing my luck!

Taken a punt on this - will see what the condition is like and make a decision on whether to keep it. There doesn't seem to be too much difference in the two for what I want from it. Good find.

Was yours sealed both top and bottom of the box?

Mins has a clear sticker on the bottom, but nothing at the top. Although you can see that a paper type sticker has been pealed off and left residue near the top.

Just in case anyone is pondering going for this - mine turned up on Saturday morning and despite the box being tatty and full of sticker residue the player itself was immaculate - not a smudge or scratch on the screen and totally blemish free on the player case itself. Sound is superb and I am really happy with the purchase. Cheers BB1 for pointing this out.

So was mine I hope, just wondered if both ends were meant to be sealed.
